Hello, I'm James

I am a Junior Developer, who loves frontend design.

I live in Bronte; love the ocean as well as motorbikes & my best mate Cooper (he's over there). After 11 years in IT Recruitment, I finally got the chance to pursue my passion and enrolled in General Assembly's first Software Engineering course. A VERY intense 13 week, full-time course on full stack development.

During My Course We Covered

We covered the full stack of modern software development. With a focus on Javascript and its popular frameworks, React & Vue. As well as this, we looked at backend tech such as Ruby on Rails & NodeJS. I can tell you the whole list when we met for a coffee!
